I’ve written flash fictions ever since June 2015, which was when I participated in a Flash Fiction Contest on DeviantArt in preparation for the main thing which caused me to find my way to the world of flashfics: Flash Fiction Month, FFM for short. While I occasionally write random flash fictions, FFM stories make up most of my flash fictions.
Between FFM 2016 and FFM 2018, we had Flash Prompts, monthly flash fiction challenges to keep the rust away from the flash ficcing skills of the FFM folk. After FFM 2017, the duration of Flash Prompts was extended to one in two months, giving the busiest of flashers more time to join these challenges. However, Flash Prompts have not made a return after FFM 2018.
Inspired by fellow FFMers such as Damon L. Wakes and G.Deyke, I’m planning to create my own FFM collections. The fanfictions among the FFM stories I will, however, leave out and instead give links to them to avoid copyright issues. That should be the most legal way to deal with them, I think. If I’m wrong, please go ahead and correct me.
You can read more about my plans for my FFM collections here.
As for my other flash fiction stories, there are fewer ones there, mostly ones written for contests or challenges. Most of the recent ones are from Prose-ject 2019, in which we had to write an at least 250-word story each day of June using at least one of the three given prompts of the day. Many of the other flash fictions, on the other hand, are for one big contest: The Gauntlet, an insane contest with nine challenges, starting from normal ones until it escalates into pure insanity.
There is a strange allure in those insane challenges, so I do not regret taking on them.
